Do you find the the recipe contest should allow recipes less than 500 words long?


The hub recipe contest states that the recipes must contain at least 500 words to be entered. I am absolutely frustrated as I would have several good recipes but they are just not long enough. I was told that I could write other stuff relating to the recipe or the ingredients etc. I just worked over an hour translating a recipe and found out it's only 276 words long. I'm giving up now as I don't want to waste more time writing up an essay about tomatoes and watermelons. No offence, but is this a recipe contest or is this a story contest? Shouldn't recipes be short and easy to cook?

    Cloverleaffarm: Thanks for your input. I especially enjoyed your lemon balm butter recipe and tried it out. Haven't tasted it yet, as it went directly in the freezer (was made with freshly churned butter).
